Javier Alvarado’s anthology takes us on a mystical journey, from the jungles of Panamá to the streets of London. His remarkable verse embraces a yearning for earlier days, yet exposes the ghosts that haunt us in the present. By exploring past traumas such as displacement, war, and occupation in Panamá and much of Latin America, these poems urge us to remember the pain and loss that come with history. At the same time, they encourage us to create a future of love, passion, and hope.
